Social Impact Committee Report 01/02/02

Report Adopted by the Council Meeting of 01 February 2002

Report to Council 1 February 2002

MEMBERSHIP: Howard Frederick, Chair; Jennifer Northover, Drew Whittle, Simon Riley; Andrew Mason, Don Hollander

Crs Frederick and Northover have been active participants in the planning of the NetSafe: Society, Safety and the Internet conference to take place February 10-12. The Society is one of the key sponsors and has committed $5,000 to the success of the conference. In addition to Crs Northover and Frederick, the Executive Director Sue Leader, Cr Rick Shera and member Jenny Shearer are participating.

This is a think tank conference with the goal of opening channels of communication between different sectors of the Internet. New Zealand is the first country in the world to have a national Internet Safety initiative, developed by the Internet Safety Group. The goal of the ISG is to keep children and young people safe on the Internet through education. When leaders in various sectors of the Internet are aware of the broad range of social impact issues regarding the Internet, there will be more talent and expertise available to those working on keeping young people safe, and thus a better chance of putting effective prevention strategies in place. This conference will create a network of resources focused on helping young people enjoy the Internet safely.

This think tank conference is seen as a prelude to a larger international conference in late 2002 or early 2003. New Zealandâ??s model for Internet Safety education is already being studied by several overseas groups. This conference is a crucial part of making New Zealand the most pro-active country in the world in educating its populace about commonsense guidelines for safety on the Internet.
